Recipe: Wheatless Bread Buns
WHEATLESS BREAD BUNS
MAKES 10 PIECES
The added bonus of this recipe is that allergy-friendliness aside – it’s also great for those who are on a diet as it is virtually carb-free and packed with protein
3 eggs, separated
3 tbsp cream cheese
¼ tsp cream of tartar
A pinch of artificial sweetener
1 Preheat the oven to 150C.
2 Separate the eggs, being mindful that no yolk combines with the white.
3 Mix the egg yolks, sweetener and cream cheese in a bowl until smooth.
4 In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites and cream of tartar together on high speed until they are fluffy and form stiff peaks.
5 Carefully fold the egg yolk mixture into the egg whites until combined, but keep the mixture as fluffy as possible.
6 Lightly grease two baking sheets.
7 Using a large spoon, dollop 10 even rounds onto the sheets, about 2cm thick and about 10cm in diameter.
8 Bake on the middle rack for about 30 minutes, checking frequently, until they are golden brown.
9 Remove from the oven and allow to cool before transferring to ziploc bags to allow them to develop a bread-like chew.
